Giorgio Armani #24 Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow

As much as I love make up, and Lord knows I do, I mean I'm at about 620 posts talking about the stuff, there is time in a beauty lover's life where something leaves one speechless.  Or at least utter an audible gasp.  Or a breathless "ooooooh".  Last weekend was one of those times.

I got this Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow last week at the launch of the new Maestro Skin Perfector foundation, but more on that soon.  I need to tell you about this immediately.  Shade 24.  Look at it.
One of Armani's hybrid formulations, this black and gold loose powder that is pressed down with a plastic cap is simply stunning.  You can see in the swatch above on my hand that it has a slight olive shimmer to it and I couldn't wait to get it on my face.  I used a flat shader brush to pat the colour on and there was fall out with it as it's a loose powder.  

I patted the colour all over the lid and literally the whole time I was doing so, was saying, out loud and in my mind, "Oh yes, oh this is gorgeous, oh wow" and was quite close to recreating That Scene in When Harry Met Sally.

I used a fluffy brush to apply a little to the crease and blended the edges, giving me a quick but gorgeous smokey eye.  A little bit under the lower lashes at the corner added a little Je ne sais quoi.  I used a powder brush to lightly wipe away any fall out on my cheeks and I spent the rest of the day raising my eyebrows up and giving myself sidelong glances in the mirror, admiring my eyes.  

I had this on for over 8 hours and get this, without a primer, it didn't crease one single bit.  That's unheard of for a big oily lidded bridie like myself. 


€26 is the damage but for something so special, it's worth it.  Joanne's going on holidays this Thursday and doesn't know it yet, but shall be picking me up another shade as a present.  Isn't she so nice? 

Lads, get yourselves down to your local Giorgio Armani counter and swatch this and I defy you not to fall in The Love with it.  And get yourself shade matched for the Maestro Skin Perfector there while you're at it.  I'm all about the multitasking.

What shade should I try next?  I'm thinking shade 27 or shade 28?

  4. Stunning, stunning, STUNNING! It's 28 that I have - golden flecks with russet shot through and 27 is on my list for this payday but Holy Moly that's gorgeous.

    I always overlooked Eyes to Kill figuring if I had L'Oreal Infallibles I was set, how wrong I was.

    Do Want.
